Prince William and Kate headed to the Maldives for a romantic break ahead of their Australian and New Zealand tour next month, according to newspaper reports.

Kensington Palace has refused to confirm or deny the story. The palace never comments on the private activities of the Royal family.

They apparently arrived on a BA flight this morning and according to local sources will spend a week on vacation in the Noonu atoll in the Maldives.

The Maldives has hosted Hollywood celebrities from George Clooney to Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Moss because of its glittering white sand beaches and privacy. It's also a favored destination for Brits because of its outdoor water activities, spectacular snorkeling and direct flights from London.

William and Kate have spent a number of holidays in the Indian Ocean previously including their honeymoon in the Seychelles after their wedding.

Whether it's a vacation a deux is anyone's guess. It's unclear whether Prince George is on holiday with the new mother and father. Prince George will travel with his parents to New Zealand and Australia next month from April 17-25 on his first foreign tour. Prince William made a similar visit at 9 months of age with Princess Diana and Prince Charles 31 years ago.
